Manhole accident £3,750

One of our clients (aged 63) had a nasty accident just outside his home in Priory Vale, Swindon. In April 2009, he was walking in the communal garden when he stepped on manhole cover which collapsed beneath him, causing him to fall into it and suffer lacerations to both his legs. Fortunately, he made a complete recovery from his injuries within a period of two months, although he has been left with some minor scars on both legs.

The insurers of the company responsible for the manhole cover admitted liability following receipt of our letter of claim.

S. J. Edney solicitors obtained damages of £3,750 for this client during 2009
